First of all…what do you think about my new header picture? I took this one last summer…it’s Myra Falls. Quite magnificent in real life. Here is another picture of the wonderful beauty right in my backyard.
Lower Myra Falls is one of the few waterfalls in the Northwest that drops straight into a lake and can easily be reached. This is probably one of the most popular waterfalls in Strathcona Provincial Park. The formation of Lower Myra Falls, also known just as Myra Falls, is interesting as well. All along the west side of Buttle Lake is a fault, which has repeatedly dropped during several earthquakes of the past, causing a sudden change in the elevation of the bedrock. So, with a series of 6-8 drops, Myra Creek plunges down the resulting wall, straight into aqua-blue Buttle Lake. The trail to the falls leads to the large pool in between the two major parts of the falls. Above the pool, you'll have the view pictured here, but to see the remaining 100 feet of the falls, you'll have to scramble down narrow paths to the lakeshore, then, if the water level isn't too high, walk around to a gravel bar jutting out in front of the falls, allowing a look back up the small gorge. Don't forget to bring your bathing suit, the pool at the trail's end is a great dipping hole (just stay well out of the main current).
Instead of a food post this weekend, how about a cute post for all of you animal lovers? The kids and I were browsing around YouTube this morning while cuddling on the couch and we found this cute video. I think my favourite part is the dog in the bubble bath..we laughed so hard.
And a bonus clip for you…one of my dog Buster and Bonnie the puppy playing together during my visit to Vancouver a few weeks ago.
Enjoy and have a great weekend.
